The Food and Drug Administration said Thursday the agency issued final guidance to help renderers comply with a new rule that prohibits high-risk cattle materials from being processed into feeds for any animal.

The rule was published in the Federal Register on April 25, 2008, and became effective April 27, 2009. (See FDA confirms April 27 effective date for final feed ban on Meatingplace, April 23, 2009.)

Titled "Small Entities Compliance Guide for Renderers Substances Prohibited from use in Animal Food or Feed," the final guidance also aims to help slaughter facilities understand their obligations under the rule.
